Red Cross officials have opened a second emergency shelter in Lakeport for Clear Lake flood victims, emergency officials announced Friday morning.

The shelter has been set up in the California National Guard Armory, 1431 Hoyt Ave. Lake County Sheriff Brian Martin announced the opening on the county’s Office of Emergency Services Facebook Page.

Due to the closure of Hill Road East between Lakeshore Boulevard and Sutter Lakeside Hospital, Martin recommended those traveling to the armory use Park Way and Hill Road.

The Red Cross opened its first evacuation shelter earlier this week in Lakeport at the Seventh Day Adventist Church, 1111 Park Way.

Clear Lake remains above flood stage of 9 feet on the Rumsey gauge. The high waters and other storm damage have prompted both mandatory and voluntary evacuations and a declaration of a local state of emergency.
